Air Quality Compliance Support

How can we possibly stay in compliance?

Air quality permits and regulations can require source testing, recordkeeping and emissions reporting to verify compliance. To avoid violation notices and/or expensive fines, a solid air quality compliance management program must be in place.

BlueScape will meet the challenge of developing a comprehensive air quality compliance management program designed to meet the specific needs of your company:

  • We will complete a comprehensive audit of current operations to determine areas of compliance requirements.
  • We will develop methods to routinely track and monitor compliance requirements to avoid non-compliance.
  • We will create comprehensive training guidelines for your staff.
  • We will assist you in developing schedules of critical timelines in which proof of compliance will be required by regulatory agencies.

BlueScape will also assist you in times of trouble. If your company is found in violation or non-compliance, we will help you to obtain and present air quality data to agency staff so that you can properly represent the facts in negotiations.

When your company must meet these regulation requirements:

  • Air quality rules & regulations (federal, state & local)
  • State and local emission inventory requirements
  • SARA Title III (Form R Reporting)
  • California Proposition 65
  • RCRA

Sample Projects

Industry: Automobile Manufacturing
Client: General Motors Corporation
Prime Contractor: Golden Environmental

Air Quality Compliance Audit, Flint, Michigan. Completed the air quality portion of an environmental audit for the General Motors "Buick City" facility in Flint, Michigan. The audit covered auxiliary operations, such as maintenance areas and electrical power generation facilities. Worked with GM staff to resolve and close out issues pertaining to recent minor source and PSD permit application submittals and air emissions inventory submittals.

Industry: Dental Material Processing
Client: Argen Corporation
Prime Contractor: BlueScape

Air Emissions Investigation and Compliance Review. A facility that reclaims and recycles metal alloys from dental bridge grindings was concerned about potential air emissions from a melting operation. Assisted the client by observing the melting operation and associated stack emissions. MSDS sheets and other records were reviewed to determine if any toxic metal alloys would be emitted into the outside air. Concluded that air emissions would not cause odors or visible smoke that would bother commercial neighbors. As a minor operation, the facility would likely be exempted from air quality rules as regulations.

Industry: Electric Power Generation
Client: Confidential
Prime Contractor: BlueScape

Proposition 65 Audit and AB2588 Health Risk Assessment Revisions for Six Facilities in California. Completed Proposition 65 due diligence audits for six facilities located in the San Francisco Bay Area and San Joaquin Valley. The company generates power by firing petroleum coke in fluidized bed combustors; a Prop 65 audit was required to identify the potential exposures for on-site workers and contractors, customers and the community through air, water, waste and co-product exposure routes. Processed results of a source test completed by Avogadro Group to complete air toxic emissions calculations. Completed community exposure assessments using the SCREEN3 dispersion model. Recommended that community Prop 65 warnings did not need to be completed. Other recommendations were provided regarding gate and on-site notification procedures. Used the new air toxic emissions data from source testing to revise the AB2588 health risk assessments for five facilities.
